Many thanks to everyone who visited or helped at our annual Christmas Fair on Saturday, the 26th of November. A great time was had by all and Santa was kept very busy in his grotto.
The renovation of the south parapet and gutter, funded with the help of a grant from the 'Listed Places of Worship' fund, is now completed with the parapet rebuilt and the gutters reconstructed as can be seen on this link . We are now planning phase two of this project, which is the renovation of the the North side Parapet and gutters, etc. and replacing all of our 176 year old roof.
Visit our recently updated Rose Queen gallery (on the 'about us' tab), or view our Photo gallery and see if you can recognise old friends. Perhaps you have photos that help fill in the missing Queens? A new gallery of pictures of New St. George's Whit Walks has been created which will also test memories.
St George's Church Stalybridge is a community of Anglican (Church of England) worshippers.
St George's vicar is the Revd. Philip Brierley. Philip was an Ordained Local Minister at St George's and had been our Curate for many years. He was made Priest-in-Charge in 2013 and was licenced as Vicar on the 11th of September 2016.
We gather for worship on Sundays and Tuesdays during the week. This is usually for the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) that we believe is the central act of Christian worship.
We also meet in order to be of service to others. This takes different forms:
activities that we run as a church,
things which we do with other groups
all that our congregation members do in their daily lives and occupations.
